NIST Compliance Solution

Meeting the NIST 800-171 guidelines can be complex and expensive for companies with limited staff and security expertise.

Fortra’s Alert Logic’s MDR and XDR solutions provide asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, and web application security. Our solutions can help you meet the NIST guidelines so that you can:

  • Reduce your risk of attacks with continuous vulnerability scanning and configuration inspection of your applications running on the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environments.
  • Quickly respond to attacks and post-breach activities with distributed IDS sensors that provide full-packet inspection and real-time alerts.
  • Protect customer data from network and OWASP Top 10 attacks with web application scanning and web application firewall technologies.
  • Demonstrate meeting NIST guidelines with the event and log data you need for automated alerts, audit trails and easy access for reporting, stored in our secure SSAE 16 Type 2 audited data centers for as long as you need.
  • Free up resources with comprehensive log review and threat monitoring by our 24/7 Security Operations Center.


Understanding NIST 800-171 Guidelines

The NIST 800-171 requirements, along with NIST 800-53, are part of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). The NIST 800-171 guidelines help to provide a blueprint for establishing an IT cybersecurity program with the framework for addressing:

  • Access control
  • Audit and accountability
  • Configuration management
  • Identification and authentication
  • Incident response
  • Risk assessment
